Colden Common is twinned with St. Vigor-Le-Grand, a small community near Bayeaux. Our aim is to promote and foster friendship and understanding between the two communities. We hope to extend cultural, recreational, educational and commercial activities also. We organise fund raising activities to pursue these aims. We are a very sociable and friendly group. Why not give twinning a try? An ability to speak French is not a necessity - just a liking for food, wine and good company.
